Speak to Admissions
No website can tell you a school’s full story, which is why it’s important to get an Admissions Representative on the phone as soon as possible. Our representatives will explain to you all about the school, adding the human element that the website lacks. They’ll put you in contact with former students, instructors, and others who can tell you about the Institute from the inside.

Schedule a Tour
Never underestimate the role of ambiance in making or breaking a school. If you study at a college with good weather, beautiful scenery, and intriguing architecture, you’ll have a sense of pride in your school and will be able to study and focus more easily. The Southern Careers Institute is happy to provide tours of all of our campuses. You need only make an appointment ahead of time, which you can do online or over the phone. If the tour leaves little to be desired, it’s time to consider…

Financial Aid
However beautiful and prestigious a school is, it won’t do you any good if you can’t afford to go there. Luckily, the Southern Careers Institute provides a wide range of options to help you pay for your education, and financial aid is a crucial part of the Southern Career Institute application process. We accept a wide variety of Federal and private payment tools, including the William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan Program, Federal Pell Grants, and the Federal Supplemental Education Opportunity Grant; we provide a matching scholarship for all FSEOG recipients. We are proud to serve our veterans, and accept payments from the Montgomery GI Bill, the Post 9/11 Bill, the Reserve Educational Assistance Program, and a wide range of other military benefits.

Student Services
The final part of the Southern Career Institute application process is to contact Student Services and tell them you wish to apply. They will provide you with the official Southern Career Institute application, answer any questions you have about applying, and keep you updated while the application is being processed. Once you’ve been accepted, Student Services can explain to you what you need to do to prepare for being a student. If you are also accepted to other schools at the same time, Student Services will explain what sets the Southern Careers Institute apart. Applying to a school is important, but it pales in comparison to choosing a major. From medical billing and coding to pharmacy tech to business accounting, there are many promising career paths. Make sure to pick the one that’s right for you. For more information on choosing the right path, contact the Southern Careers Institute today.

What SCI Students Are Saying

“I made a complete career change when I started my training at Southern Careers Institute. I needed a stable career to continue providing for my growing family. SCI provided me with the medical terminology and know how that I needed to understand and acquire a career in the medical field. SCI taught me that it doesn’t matter where you are in life right now; you always have room to advance and learn.”


Denise S.
Medical Assistant

“I am extremely grateful for the assistance I received from SCI’s Career Services team. I enjoy where I work and what I do. SCI has helped me succeed in life by getting me the necessary education and by making me a stronger and more confident person.”


Raquel S.

“Once I graduated from SCI, I had a sense of accomplishment that helped me through the job search process. SCI provided me with the opportunity to brush up on my skills, extend my accounting knowledge, and they boosted my self-confidence. I went to work two days after my last day of school.”


Annette D.
Business Accounting

“When my youngest child graduated from high school, I told my husband that it was my time. I went back to school to change careers after spending 37 years in the business field. At SCI, the instructors are professional, and they care about what they are teaching you, as well as expect you to give 100% in return. I had problems understanding how to draw in syringes and give injections. I requested extra help from a knowledgeable instructor, and I was able to receive one-on-one training. Today, I draw injections for approximately 100 patients each week. I am very confident in what I’ve learned. SCI has given me the chance to do what I always wanted to do. Thank you for my education. I am doing wonderful.”


Bonnie M
